Most of the scripts are written for four puppets because they can comfortably fit behind the stage. If more/less puppeteers are involved, break up the script accordingly.
The scripts help children learn how to behave in church, lessons from the Bible, church etiquette, the importance of regular attendance, how God is important in their lives and more. Children (and parents) are very receptive to the characters and scripts; they hardly know they are being taught!
His rodeo days are coming to an end. Because he is about to be put out to “pasture”, Deplorabull is obviously depressed. With the help of Imaheffer, and a couple of friends, they realize that with God you are “Unstoppable” (presented at an LTC event).
Deplorabull and Imaheffer also appear in other scripts with additional farm animals. Together they make learning about values, parables, and Scripture fun, funny, and entertaining.
“Sycamore” is obviously a tree, but an insightful tree with good roots. The flowers are, “Lifeless”, “Wilted”, and “Droopy”; they represent the parable of seeds being scattered on rocky, poor soil. In this script they are “nourished” in a fun and exciting way to show children the value of reading the Bible.
Three scarecrows and the crow are in a “deep” conversation when the (not so smart) crow calls them a bunch of dummies on wooden crosses. The “dummies” get the last laugh!
Farm animals, “Luke Warm”, “Pat Gently”, “Barb Dwyer”, “Neil Down” and a “Voice” share Luke Warm’s scary experience on the road to a rodeo. His conversion is much like that of Saul/Paul.
The Snake, the Tree, and the Apple
The snake, the tree, and the apple discuss the snake’s true name, his chameleon like characteristics, and how he likes to manipulate mankind.
Jim Bob, Suzy and the preacher wander through a myriad of Sunday morning excuses. Will any of them sound familiar?
Jane, John, and the Dust Bunny have different ideas on church etiquette. They share the top ten list of “No, No’s” for Sunday morning services.
